[Pkg-rust-maintainers] Bug#953907: dh-cargo: installs various non-rust files to /usr/share/cargo

Package: dh-cargo
Version: 23


During review of rust packages in NEW, I noticed that many of them
install many files to /usr/share/cargo which should probably not be
installed to the binary package at all, and certainly not to

-rw-r--r-- root/root        31 2019-07-08 23:10 ./usr/share/cargo/registry/maybe-uninit-2.0.0/.gitignore
-rw-r--r-- root/root       180 2019-07-10 13:07 ./usr/share/cargo/registry/maybe-uninit-2.0.0/.travis.yml
-rw-r--r-- root/root     10847 2019-07-08 23:11 ./usr/share/cargo/registry/maybe-uninit-2.0.0/LICENSE-APACHE
-rw-r--r-- root/root      1071 2019-07-08 23:11 ./usr/share/cargo/registry/maybe-uninit-2.0.0/LICENSE-MIT
-rw-r--r-- root/root       996 2019-07-10 13:13 ./usr/share/cargo/registry/maybe-uninit-2.0.0/README.md

I don't know where this needs to be fixed, but maybe in dh-cargo, so
filing a bug here.  Thanks!
